As a sustainable business that invests in the long term, we are committed to promoting positive environmental change and investing in more sustainable forms of transport for our customers and employees.
At Crossways Commercial Park we have developed a dedicated Travel Plan enabling greater travel choice and helping to reduce private car use. Our travel guide website is designed to be a helpful resource, providing details of travel options, hints and tips and useful links - from local bus services and nearby railway stations to opportunities for car sharing and cycling to work.
To find out more about our commitments, please download a copy of the Travel Plan for further details.
The development has been designed to include cycle and pedestrian links to the local road and footpath network. This includes dedicated routes along the A206 and the riverside, connecting Crossways Business Park with Dartford town centre (to the west) and Greenhithe (to the east).
Covered cycle parking and showers/changing facilities are also provided at each of the new properties.
Cycling can save money and time, is environmentally friendly, and keeps you fit and healthy. Did you know?

As part of Goodman’s investment in improving infrastructure at Crossways Commercial Park, dedicated footpaths have been created to link the site with the wider business park and its amenities, as well as the local bus stops and train stations.
Walking is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to keep fit. There is no need for special equipment, just a supportive pair of shoes and you can start walking slowly and build up gradually.
Living Streets, a charity the promotes everyday walking, is on a mission to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk more. You can find out more via their website.
There are also lots of initiatives and annual fundraising events that you can take part in:
